Houses of Hope for youth at risk.

  • The Brome Missisquoi Youth Foundation built the Houses of Hope for youth at risk between 1996 and 1998 with funds bequeathed by Mme Contat for youth in the Montérégie.
  • Mme Contat was a long-time resident of Montreal and Brome-Missisquoi.
  • The Foundation built and maintains the houses; the Directorate of Youth Protection (DPJ) provides the services therein.
  • Over 1,000 youth have been assisted by these facilities;
  • BMAYS (Brome-Missisquoi Youth and Adolescent Services) is the only English-language home for youth at risk in the Montérégie.
